Re: Hood prop on Ebay going nuts.

This one says it's chrome but who knows? Whole lot cheaper than $169.50 anyway.

Re: What would Henry think ??

It reminds me of some of the wild paint jobs on 60s show cars. I doubt Henry would have liked it because he wasn't into frilly cosmetics. But one thing the purists overlook is he was a hot-rodder...

Re: Canvas Sport Coupe Top

Our first re-topping was an L-B kit. Maybe the car gods were watching as it turned out really nice for an amateur job. We took our time and figured out where and how everything fit before...

Re: Canvas Sport Coupe Top

And yet many are incorrectly installed - just ask Mr Google for pix. Like you say, easy fix.

Being a former Sport Coupe owner (and wishing I still was), this is a pet peeve - just doesn't look...

Re: Canvas Sport Coupe Top

Not dissing your car but if that's it in your avatar, the landau irons are incorrectly installed. The passenger side should look like a letter S with the fake center knob toward the rear of the car....

Yup. Model A parts houses have them or at least used to - cheap and sometimes thrown in free when other stuff is ordered. The one in the OP is screwed on but they come with drive rivets. They do...

Re: 1931 Model A Serial Number

Re: 1936 Pickup High beam indicator light

And another thought...there was less traffic so less need to switch between high and low beams. Having driven both, the foot switch is a lot easier to manipulate while using both hands to steer. ...

Re: Model A Luggage Trunk?

Yelp reports Malm Luggage (presumably the successor to W. R. Malm) in S. F. is closed. There is a review from about 12 years ago, so they still must have been in business at least that recently.

Re: New gasket for 1930 radiator cap question....

I had a repro quail on which the fiber gasket was too thin so the cap rattled. I got a rubber O-ring of the right diameter at the hardware store - no more problem.

Never cleaned a phaeton top but I've used Tuff Stuff with good results on upholstery, etc - YMMV and of course test first. It's available at Wally-World and just about everywhere else.

Re: Spare Wheel and Tire Lock

Have you tried the ignition and door keys in the spare tire locks? Sometimes they're keyed alike. Otherwise, as 1930artdeco said, a good locksmith should be able to make keys.
